...Heat Rises ended up being a miss for me. The character development of Laura and Ethan was non existent, and neither had any personality showing.

Synopsis

Snowbound in a cabin . . . able to live out all her fantasies . . .

Laura Barber has dreamt of doing unspeakably delicious things with Ethan Gould for years. Now, stuck in a mountain cabin, she just might get her shot. Ethan offers her the chance to live out each and every one of those desires. They may be rivals in the business world, but in the bedroom they're a perfect match. Knowing they have only a few days, Laura shakes off all her inhibitions. Every secret need, every lust-filled thought . . . it's all fair game.

Gaines takes the romantic trope of stranding two people together and kicks it up a notch.

I felt the author did a good job of packing a lot into this short story, and making sure it didn't have that rushed feel to it that many novellas do. There were some things I liked and other things I didn't.

This is a quick, hot read. There is even a little spanky panky going on, so suck on THAT, Christian Grey.

A couple of things that really annoyed me were some of the nicknames for certain body parts like member and groove, it was just too old fashioned for me. But that’s just me, I like erotic romance to be more real, dirty words and all.
